Morning of Surgery Day

Arrive at the clinic with your pet to check-in between 8:00 AM and 8:30 AM.  Please allow 10 to 15 minutes.

A physical exam is performed, and a blood sample is taken for pre-anesthetic bloodwork if this option has been chosen by the owner.  Learn more about pre-anesthetic bloodwork on our Surgery FAQ's page.

The patient is placed in a cage to wait until surgery time.  Once bloodwork is complete and has been reviewed by a doctor, the patient will receive pain medication.

A surgery pack is prepared and sterilized in the autoclave.

The surgery suite is prepared.
